1963-B $1 Bill, E-F (Barr Note)

The famed Barr notes are a series of U.S. bills printed during the time Joseph W. Barr was Secretary of the Treasury from December 21, 1968 to January 20, 1969.

These bills are not rare or valuable if found in circulation, even if they are in high grade they have little extra value. Since Barr served such a short time in office thoughts were that any notes with his signature will become valuable. 458 million were printed only in one dollar denominations and they survived in many collections in very high grade.

At the end this note proved how speculators can hype a collectable but after years the market does correct any initial overvaluation. Also despite the estimate of a circulation life between 21-36 months there are still a good number being used.

Here's the stats for this bill...
Type/Federal Bank: $1 Note - D.C. / Richmond
Year: 1963-B
Printings: 73,600,000
Printed: January 1969 - November 1969
Run: 75th of 51-157 run from E47360001F - E48000000F 
Value:  $1.00 in VF
